Isabel Roloff came out swinging on Instagram a few hours ago. And, she had her sights set on Instagram trolls. As most probably aren’t too surprised to learn, marrying into a reality TV series family isn’t easy. Considering her husband Jacob Roloff walked away from the TLC series, LPBW follow him and his wife like a hawk on Instagram for updates. Unfortunately, with all those eagle-eyed followers comes a lot of trolls. And, there was a time where Isabel Roloff had a hard time dealing with the trolls. But, she’s not the same girl she used to be.
Isabel Roloff’s wedding was the best and worst day of her life.
Now, Isabel Roloff admits that her wedding to Jacob was the happiest and best day of her life. But, those following her and her husband on Instagram made it hard for her to remain happy.
“I have never felt more beautiful than that day.” Isabel gushed. “I had my ideal wedding day, as far as my personal preparation goes.”
But, for a long time, Isabel questioned herself. She questioned if she was as beautiful as she felt. Why? Well, it was because pictures of her in her wedding dress started to pop up all over social media. And, there were a lot of trolls that took to the comments. The comment section of Instagram quickly became a huge trigger for her. Because people had a lot of nasty things to say about her and the dress she was wearing.
She explained: “As photos started popping up all over my family’s social media accounts, I was elated. Until I would read the comments. Comment sections became a huge trigger for me. I actually had to mute my family members because I didn’t want to read another mean comment about how I looked on the happiest day(s) of my life. I have anxiety now even thinking about it. These are actual comments I read only a few days following. It had a real, negative effect on me and that’s why I wanted to address this.”
Turns out, she hesitated to make this candid post on Instagram.
Now, this was a very powerful post by Isabel Roloff. But, it is one she hesitated with posting. “I debated posting this for a long time. But now, looking back on these photos, I am feeling real pain that I was ever lead to believe I looked like anything other than a goddess on my wedding day.” She explains.
Ultimately, Isabel Roloff decided it was important. Important for her to call attention to the way LPBW followers made her feel after her wedding. She wanted people to know that the way they spoke of her and her wedding dress was not alright.
I want to bring attention to how INAPPROPRIATE THIS IS. How have we not learned by now? That leaving cruel comments about people and their bodies is not okay? That policing what a person wears is not okay? That thinking that one’s opinion needs to always be given? That the unreasonable pressure for people to look better than they ever have for ONE day is not okay?”
Isabel Roloff continued to add that it really shouldn’t matter how famous a person is. Or, how many followers they might have on Instagram. A person is still a person. Despite being connected to reality TV, she’s still human. And, she deserved to be treated as such. Isabel Roloff wanted to remind people that while it is hard to remember celebrities are just people too. It is important to remember they have feelings just the same as their fans.
Now, what were people saying about Isabel’s wedding dress?
Isabel’s post contained a second photo. If you slide over, you will see the same photo of her in her gorgeous wedding dress. But, this photo contains text. Isabel decided to highlight some of the comments that she struggled with seeing on her picture.

TW: MENTION OF ED. I debated posting this for a long time. But now, looking back on these photos, I am feeling real pain that I was ever led to believe I looked like anything other than a goddess on my wedding day. I have never felt more beautiful than that day. Jacob and I drove out to the coast, beaming, and slowly got ready for our day. I did my own makeup. I curled my own hair. I put on my dream wedding dress and walked barefoot through the dirt to marry my husband. I had my ideal wedding day, as far as my personal preparation goes. As photos started popping up all over my family’s social media accounts, I was elated. Until I would read the comments. Comment sections became a huge trigger for me. I actually had to mute my family members because I didn’t want to read another mean comment about how I looked on the happiest day(s) of my life. I have anxiety now even thinking about it. These are actual comments I read only a few days following. It had a real, negative effect on me and that’s why I wanted to address this. I want to bring attention to how INAPPROPRIATE THIS IS. How have we not learned by now? That leaving cruel comments about people and their bodies is not okay? That policing what a person wears is not okay? That thinking that one’s opinion needs to always be given? That the unreasonable pressure for people to look better than they ever have for ONE day is not okay? No matter how many followers a person has, does not take away from their humanness. They still read their comments. They still have feelings about those comments. I have a great support system now. I no longer believe any of this! I go to therapy and I told my therapist all about the eating disorder I struggled with for years. We’re working on it. What makes me sad is, today, a year later, I look at these photos and only see how happy I was. The fact that I think I look beautiful, too, is only a bonus. Here is your reminder to be mindful of every comment you leave in people’s energetic spaces. Yes, here too. THINK before you leave that comment. “Does it need to be said? Does it need to be said by me?” Your words have impact. They could have more of an impact than you think.
Some of these comments called attention to her belly. Insisted she looked pregnant. A few called her “frumpy.” One individual praised Jacob for not caring about how unattractive his wife was.
“You’d think she’d have lost weight before the wedding.” Another comment read.
A few of the comments suggested the issue was her trying to squeeze her body into a dress that was too small. One even claimed she showed off too much of her bosom. And, that her dress wasn’t respectful of her husband.
And how did her followers feel about this powerful post?
Well, wherever the critics in her past disappeared to it certainly wasn’t the comment section of this post. The comment section oozed love, warmth, and support. Isabel Roloff clearly had a lot of people following her because they cared for her.
- “Girl. Just so proud of you and how you’re using this space to spread love and educate others you are, were, and will always be so incredibly beautiful and not just because you have the best hair, most stunning eyes, and a bangin body, but because you have a heart that shines so bright, everyone can see the light.”
- “If it helps – I struggle with ED and I constantly look to you for confidence/your ability to embrace you who are. Thank you for standing strong against unfair winds and voicing your difficulties. It makes me all the more inclined to appreciate you and the words you share. You and Jacob’s relationship is unparalleled and shame on those who thought it was their place to share their unwarranted/cruel opinion on a day that marks the true beginning of your love of one another. Cheers to you, your relationship, his love for you and your appreciation of/for yourself!”
- “You are beautiful. I remember looking at your wedding pics thinking WOW. Keep glowing, you are a gorgeous body and soul. “
